Training has changed and the days of rote memorization via one way lectures, hoarding knowledge and “traditional” learning styles are over. If you can’t learn and apply your knowledge to problem solving, real world situations, the work place or in your everyday life, you will forget it. Continuous interactive learning is the best strategy, and you either use it or lose it. Organizations would spend far less on high turn over rates, outside contractors, inefficient use of tools and on being forced to bring in new people that have more skills, if they simply invested more in education for their people. But history shows us that this is not what organizations do. When markets drop and economies contract, budgets get cut and the first thing to go is learning. Zero Strategist’s approach to learning is to develop interactive and evolve a long term training strategies characterized by continuous asymmetric education. We believe in hands on, experiential and interdisciplinary learning for life. If you keep investing in your people, they get better at what they do, produce better quality work, provide a better user experience and ultimately deliver more value to the organization.

Unconferences, open spaces, collaborative agenda events otherwise called barcamps have become the new wave of events. From the first Gov 2.0 Camp to the Community Leadership Summit to OSCON Zero Strategist has been there participating in, contributing to community and leading sessions in various topic/subject areas that we are passionate about. Whether it is volunteering for local barcamps or organizing them we understand the events landscape and can help you produce these crowd driven participatory open conference style events. When barcamps are poorly organized, ill conceived or contrived advertisements they can be the worst events you will ever intend. Barcamps that are thought through, distributed to the right communities, authentic and organized can bring together global communities, create synergy and add value to every attendees experience forming lasting networks of like minded people.
Increases in the fields of broadband technology, fiber optics, web servers and internet infrastructure have allowed us to broadcast video and audio instantly via the web. Webcasts and streaming media have become important tools not just for broadcasters but for those who want to teach and learn via the new medium. People can call in, interact, ask questions in real time and participate in distributed learning. Webcasts can also be extended beyond limits of real time and geographical constraints by being recorded and distributed via podcast or video sharing platforms like YouTube.
